With just a few hours left to go in 2013, Disney have dropped their 2014 preview, which includes looks (both new and old) of their slate. We’ve highlighted the two most notable inclusions and first up is from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. After piles of concept art and footage teased at Comic-Con 2013, the first cast pic from James Gunn‘s film has landed, which features Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista, as well as Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper as you’ve never seen them before. Arriving on August 1st, 2014, check it out above in high-resolution and the synopsis below.
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team — the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the blanace. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
